Preventing mental health issues in the first place, and recognizing that it's important to do so.

"I also implore employers not to discriminate against staff who may suffer from mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, anxiety, depression or grief, "he added".

It's getting better, but mental health seems to still be a topic that borders on the line of taboo. "Trying to undo some of the stigma that surrounds it because one of the things we found in anecdotal conversation and Dr Rolston's research is that even professionals are filled with stigma about mental health".

In fact, nearly a quarter of managers polled believe their place of work doesn't have an established procedure to follow for mental health enquiries, and 52 per cent think their workplace could make improvements to current systems and attitudes to take the mental health of workers more seriously.

Mr Sinclair said there is a need for mental ill health to be treated with the same seriousness as physical illnesses.

Funderburk says she's been seeing more patients than usual recently who are stressed out by the recent violence and political discourse nationally.

The UN health agency cited as risks to mental health inadequate health and safety policies; poor communication and management practices; limited participation in decision-making or low control over one's area of work; low levels of support for employees; inflexible working hours; and unclear tasks or organizational objectives. "To live a life I WANT, not a life I feel I need to settle with because my mind won't let me".

"Our goal is to ensure that we have an engaged workforce who are happy and healthy".
